      I cut aluminum flat stock with a fine 
toothed carbide tip blade in my 10" table saw. 
 I wear a face shield to protect from the 
flying aluminum chips.  For round stock, I use 
my metal cutting band saw with two "Vee" blocks 
to hold the round aluminum in the saw's vice. I 
use a drill press and a jig I build to drill 
holes in the aluminum and keep them all in the 
same plane.  Good luck.
